Juvenile Court Hearings & Juvenile Court Fine Payments

As you are all aware, we are all working under a statewide Judicial Emergency limiting all courts to essential functions only and tolling time frames for almost everything. These are unprecedented times.

These are the hearings we will be holding:

  • Delinquent Detention Hearings

  • Delinquent Adjudicatory Hearings (for detained youth)

  • Preliminary Protective Hearing

  • 10-Day Adjudicatory Hearings for foster care

  • Even with these limited hearings, parties can participate by phone or Zoom. Just contact clerks & let them know whether you will be attending in person, by phone or by Zoom. We are encouraging parties to participate by phone.

  • Do not bring young kids to court. Older kids -only if necessary & if they cannot meaningfully participate by phone.

    Regarding resetting hearings:

  • Right now, we are not resetting any hearings or giving out new dates. Minimally it will be 2 weeks before we resume normal operations, but it’s very likely it will be between the end of May and June before we resume regular hearings.

  • At this time, we are not sure when the next hearing will be, but it will not be for another few weeks. The best thing to do is to contact the Juvenile Court Clerks’ office and give them your best contact information, including email address, so that when the hearing is set, you can be notified. The Clerks’ office contact number is 770-443-7532 and the clerks email address is JuvenileClerks@paulding.gov

    Regarding fine payments

  • Under these unprecedented times, dropping your payment in the mail is a good way to go. We only accept money orders. In addition ,before you get your money order, please contact the clerk’s office for the discounted rate. The money orders needs to be made out to Paulding County Juvenile Court.  Also,  If you have taken the Driver’s Defense Course, please send the certificate in with the payment.
